A friend of mine is going through chemo right now, so I thought she could use something to let her know we are all praying for her. Here is a Cricut-less card I made for her today.
The glittery background paper is from the DCWV Blooms and Butterfly stack, the pink polka-dots is from Heidi Grace and the dark pink accent paper and black are scraps from my stash. I added gel pen stitches around the black layers.
I bought this wonderful sheer butterfly from the Dollar Tree. This is the larger of the two sizes I bought (they came in pink, purple and blue.. and yes I bought them all). The large butterflies came two per pack and the smaller came three per pack. I love the wire frames and the rhinestone are beautiful! :)
I typed the sentiment on my computer using Gabriola font and punched it out with my Photo Label punch from EK Success. I added a pink and black mat too (just hand cut them to size) and attached some light blue self adhesive rhinestones to match the butterfly. I attached the sentiment tag with some pop-dots.
The border punch is from Martha Stewart (sorry, I don't know the name). I added three more rhinestones along the bottom in three sizes.
Here you can see the dimension that the butterfly adds to the card front. The butterfly comes with a wire coming out of the back to attach it, I cut the wire a little short, and punched a hole in the card front layers. I just taped the butterfly's wire to the back so it can be taken apart to be reused or saved.
Here is the inside, I just used some more of the same papers to decorate the inside.
